  2. A novel process for converting wood chips into improved composite boards, chemcials, and fuels.


    The Medium Density Fiberboard or MDF industry in North America is facing many challenges, largely as a result of the weak housing market. Residential construction is 20 percent below 2006 levels and it is not likely that an improvement will happen before mid 2008. Rising imports of secondary wood products from China and other low costs countries also have a detrimental impact on the North American ...

  4. Ambient Processing and Nutritional Assessment of Trypsin-Inhibitor-Null Soybean Products

    SBC: SCHILLINGER SEED INC            Topic: N/A

    Commercial soybeans require heat processing to deactivate anti-nutrition factors/enzymes. Schillinger Seed has developed a new soybean free of the key anti-nutrition Kunitz Tyrpsin Inhibitor (SKTI-Null). This new SKTI-Null) soybean presents the opportunity for ambient or cold processing of soybeans for use in food and feed. The elimination of heat processing eliminates the need of a signifcant amo ...

  5. Targeted Homologous Recombination in Meiotic Plant Cells.Phase II

    SBC: RXOA BIOSCIENCES LLC            Topic: N/A

    Rxoa Biosciences is developing a new technology known as Homologous Recombination (HR) which will give researchers the ability to precisely modify the genetic makeup of plants. Currently, this technique for modifying the genetic makeup of an organism has only been practical for bacterial, animal and yeast research. Plant researchers have used a very inefficient "shot-gun" approach to modifying the ...

  9. Novel Approach for Fast and Economic Manufacturing of Human Antibodies

    SBC: ALPHA UNIVERSE LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A growing number of potential native and engineered biothreat agents effectively limit the proactive protection of public health through vaccination. An alternative approach relies on the use of corresponding protective antibodies that are pre-made and are used as injectable drugs in reactive rather than proactive mode. The implementation of this approach, how ...
